If you are going to be at XGen next week and you are interested in cloud computing and its application to bioinformatics, be sure to stop and participate in the Cloud Computing in Bioinformatics discussion I will be "facilitating" on Wednesday morning (March 17). My talk is at 3:05 p.m. PT on Tuesday and I will be chairing the first session on Monday (if my plane is on time and the taxi is fast enough).
